I said funded.
Funding is where Congress passes a bill that spends money & includes how that spending is funded.
"Frfor communityom the beginning, Republicans decided to forgo dedicated financing for Part D. Except for trivial premiums paid by recipients, the entire cost would fall on taxpayers. Moreover, Republicans refused to raise the Medicare tax or cut spending to cover Part D. Hence, the deficit increased by virtually the entire cost of the program.
Through 2012, Medicare Part D added $318 billion to the national debt (see “General Revenue” on Page 111 in the 2013 Medicare trustees report). That same report projects that Medicare Part D will add $852 billion to the debt over the next 10 years."

Meicare part D - UNFUNDED. ADDS TO THE DEFICIT.
This from the exact same people running in circles screaming " OMG OMG the debt the debt"
Right whiners stupidity at its best.
Are the bills paid? Yes! Then it is funded.

You obviously missed my post where I pointed out how idiotic Beck was in his reporting of Abdulrahman Alharbi and stated, much to the ire of our conservative crowd, that I hope Mr. Alharbi wins millions and Beck ends up in the poor house. IMO, if we are to end these malicious attacks, the only way we are going to do it is by hitting these people in their pocketbooks. I wish Mr. Alharbi luck...as well as Shirley Sherrod.
If you posted it in the last 5 days, yes I did miss it.

Well, it should be interesting to see how this runs its course. I find it curious reich wingers and people like Beck only like to pick on the 'small guy.' I guess they figure they can't fight back and have little to lose if they're wrong about their opinions.

Obamacare Is as American as the Founding Fathers

Republican opposition to the Affordable Care Act springs from a radical individualism that’s antithetical to why the nation was founded.

Republican opposition to Obamacare isn’t really about how much health care reform will cost or whether people will still be able to still go to their doctors or even about denying their sworn enemy Barack Obama an ounce of political victory. At its essence, Republican opposition to Obamacare derives from a philosophical resistance to being compelled to do anything that benefits others. This radical individualism is not only fundamentally antithetical to traditional conservatism but to the very principles from which our nation was forged in the first place.

....The Constitution of the United States of America begins by stating we formed our great nation to “establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty.” This is not an assertion of radical individualism but rather based on the embrace of mutual association, of the idea that together we can do more than we can do alone, the very principles of nationhood.

In the Federalist Papers, James Madison wrote,“If men were angels, no government would be necessary.” In a nation—in our nation—the whole point is to balance individual self-interest with the common good. Doing so is not antithetical to our nation’s values but, in fact, the entire reason our nation was created in the first place. And believing that as Americans we all have a duty to do things that benefit our fellow citizens and our nation as a whole, isn’t just supporting President Obama and Obamacare. It’s also called patriotism.

No deficit, The bill was fully funded. Im guessing this is confusing to alt after all those years Republicans passing bills & not caring about funding them. Like Galt's prescription plan under Medicare. Galt gobbles pills & up goes the deficit.
funded by what, other than taxes on the most productive members of society???....

Well Carol here's another even more recent poll;
For the first time, the Washington Post-ABC News poll has found more Americans support Obamacare than oppose it.
The poll, released Monday, the law's enrollment deadline, found 49 percent of Americans support the law and 48 percent oppose it. It was the first time, dating back to August 2009, that support outweighed opposition in the poll.
Support among Democrats jumped from 65 percent in January to 76 percent in the new poll. Independents (44 percent support; 54 percent oppose; and Republicans (20 percent support; 78 percent) was more stable, according to the poll. Surprisingly, the poll found a significant shift in support for the law among conservatives, with 36 percent of them backing it now compared to 17 percent in November.
On Republican efforts to replace Obamacare, Americans were also narrowly split: 47 percent support those efforts, and 49 percent oppose them.
The poll, conducted from March 26 to 30, surveyed 1,017 U.S. adults. The margin of error is 3.5 percentage points.
